Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might feel inclined to offer.
This six comes from my forthcoming debut novel, The P.U.R.E. (releasing April 16, 2012). In this scene, our heroine, Gayle, is in her bedroom changing after returning from a traumatic rendezvous.
I opened my dresser drawer and a movement in the mirror caught my attention. Raising my eyes, I detected a shift in my closet door. I froze.
My mind flipped through a series of possibilities, some realistic, others entirely too fantastic thanks to an obsession with horror novels. The cockroaches grew pretty large in Texas, but I’d never seen any muscular enough to move a door, certainly not in my apartment.
Please, anything but a human…or zombie.
Uh-oh. Who or what might be in Gayle’s closet or is her imagination running wild?
Come back tomorrow too. I’ll be unveiling my book trailer that I’m very, very proud of, especially since I did about 99% of it myself and learned a new software program in the process! I’ll be just like Michael Scott from The Office–”I made it on my Mac.” LOL
